Bible: Gal 1:12-17

1:12 For I did not receive it or learn it from any human source; 1  instead I received it 2  by a revelation of Jesus Christ. 3 

1:13 For you have heard of my former way of life 4  in Judaism, how I was savagely persecuting the church of God and trying to destroy it. 1:14 I 5  was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries in my nation, 6  and was 7  extremely zealous for the traditions of my ancestors. 8  1:15 But when the one 9  who set me apart from birth 10  and called me by his grace was pleased 1:16 to reveal his Son in 11  me so that I could preach him 12  among the Gentiles, I did not go to ask advice from 13  any human being, 14  1:17 nor did I go up to Jerusalem 15  to see those who were apostles before me, but right away I departed to Arabia, 16  and then returned to Damascus.
